    Can I ask why you would need MS Office over Open office which comes as default in Ubuntu? Im just curious thats all, perhaps you need to write VBA apps?

    @ moody_mark

    I have noticed that when using Open Office for a Powerpoint presentation, the conversion does not work as well as it could since the timing is handled differently between the two programs. So the reason is probably for compatibility.

    It occured that if you have a sufficiently powerful machine and a copy of Windows, you can also run Windows in Virtualbox.

    Re: windows office

    to check for errors in wine, and yes wine works well with 64bit.

    Open a terminal

    type:

    wine path/to/office.exe
    eg:
    wine /home/madsmeg/Microsoft\ Office/Ofiice.exe
    then list the last errors here, we may be able to help more then.

    Re: windows office

    I need to start working with a customers relation management system CRM that is based on Microsoft Access. What options do I have? Would this work on wine or would I need dual boot?

    Does running wine slow down the whole system?

    Thanks,
    I get by with a little help from my friends.

    Re: windows office

    wow... never thought people used access seriously

    I have never had any performance issues with wine (on odd occasions applications run faster in wine than natively).

    I will look into CRM with Access through wine now
